SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The death of Cederick Robinson, 31, has left heavy hearts across Shreveport.

On Friday, Police say they were called to the 600 block of Mt. Zion Road, and when they arrived they found Robinson’s body in a truck that was partially submerged.

Robinson was an active member of the ‘Out Tha Hole Riders’, a horse riding group that participates in competitions. Sunday afternoon his and other crews met on Mt. Zion Road to hold a vigil for him.

“He was an all around guy. He mingled, talked to everybody and showed everybody love," friend Betty Dodson says. “For everybody to come out today is amazing and we are going to miss him.”

During the vigil, faith leaders spoke about the importance of mental health and how important it is to check up on friends and family.

“We are one big family regardless if someone is a member of your church,” Pastor Juan Bryant says. “Seeing all these people come together shows how much we care for one another.”

Shreveport Police are still investigating his death, if you have any information you are asked to give them a call.
